Google AI is a high quality division of Google dedicated solely to Artificial Intelligence. It was first announced at Google I/O in May 2021 by CEO Sundar Pichai.. I am not an official member of Google but I have been following this space for a while and I am very impressed with the progress made by Google. I believe it to be the best kept secret in the industry until now. Recently we saw the acquisition of Qype by Yahoo, and now we have Google Wave which is positioned to be the next big thing from Google. In fact it has already gathered a lot of buzz around it.
What is Google AI? According to their official site it is a project headed by Page and Brin that will aim to build an artificial intelligence that can help with the search. It will gather data from many areas such as chat, images, speech etc. It will then analyze this data to make statistical comparisons between various things and rank the ones that it deems to be the best.
I believe the Google AI division to be one of the best kept secrets in the Internet industry and if its progress is anywhere close to what they say they are going to do it will change the way we use technology. People will be able to share information with Google that they would not normally and with artificial intelligence being able to analyze this information it will be easier for them to get the correct information and share it with the rest of us on demand. The future of the Internet is bright and its definitely not a distant dream. It will be interesting to follow this exciting division of Google and how far it takes us in the future.
